The Review: Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Straight-up, Jedi Outcast will forever be one of the best games to come out of LucasArts. If you are even remotely interested in playing a game where you control a Jedi and all they are capable of, don’t hesitate to pick-up this game. You’ll have it all, from force powers to flashy lightsaber moves -- it’s immensely satisfying to just slice Sith Lords up within the boundaries of a very mature plotline and story.
Jedi Outcast is a series of action games focusing on Kyle Katarn, an ex-jedi turned mercenary. Kyle gave up on the whole Force thing after he was tempted by the Dark Side. Let’s just say that what begins as a simple mission for Mon Mothma soon turns into an intergalactic tale of love and revenge that involves the future of the jedi. While that would be a bold claim for any game, Jedi Outcast pulls it off wonderfully.
While the story leverages Jedi Outcast, the gameplay itself satisfies your thirst for power. Stormtroopers stand no chance against your force abilities and engagements with other force-attuned warriors (typically sithlords) can be exciting moments of life or death. Admittedly, the game is outdated –it was released in 2002 after all—but the game still holds its sense of greatness; it’s an RPG where you play as a Jedi, and I’m not talking about the chaotic frenzy that is The Force Unleashed.
The game is only $3 at the G2A sale. You’ll get many hours of gameplay just from the story and plenty of hours of mindless fun from playing the game itself. Being an older game, it has a huge emphasis in rewarding players for exploration; Jedi Outcast has many secret areas for you to find on your own time. If you’re bored, pick this game up, you won’t be disappointed.
